Shades of Change
Is a 70 minutes long dance production commissioned by China Performing Arts Agency, Shandong Grand Theatre and Shandong Arts Academy (Jinan - China).
The choreography looks at the five natural elements (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal) according to Chinese culture and “Zhouyi”, also known as the Book of Changes. This, is an ancient Chinese divination text and the oldest of the Chinese classics for studying the order and rhythm of the nature of the universe. The dance theatre piece is inspired by the process of interaction between the five elements. As the narrative of the dance unfolds, the audience goes on a journey between dream and reality and between conflict and harmony.
The production will premier in November 2019 in Shandong Grand Theatre (exact date TBC)
